The most delightful room in a beautifully restored house and garden. Hosts could not be more helpful with guidance to fabulous restaurant and old town. Breakfast on the balcony and tea on the Salon - very classy.

Stayed in Coco Chanel room, which was beautifully decorated - as is the rest of the house. Breakfast was very good and included homemade jams & yogurt as... More

Grand looking and very welcoming. Sophie gave us good tips for sightseeing and restaurants (we loved her dog). The room (Coco Chanel) was lovely. Very clean, good toiletries, lots of towels, a decent hairdryer and even bathrobes. The bed was uncomfortable (very hard mattress) and had a curious headboard (a slab of foam covered in a type of sateen thing).... More

We arrived at L'Oustal on a very wet September evening and was warmly welcomed by Sophie into her beautiful home. Sophie explained with a map how to walk into the centre of Bourges or where to park if going by car, which was great so not to waste any time as we were only there overnight. Our room was perfect,...

L'Oustal is a delightful period house in a secure walled garden about 15 minutes walk from the historic city centre. Sophie welcomed us warmly and gave helpful advice on how to maximise our short stay in the interesting city of Bourges. The rooms are all themed, based on famous women from the late 19th century (the period of the house).... More

We stayed here last night on our way through Bourges and it was fantastic, this beautiful period house is set behind private gates on a quiet unassuming street about 10 minutes walk from the old town. Nothing was too much trouble and Sophie was very helpful in directing us to a good restaurant in the town. Our room was called... More

We used this as a stopover on the way from the South of France to Calais. It is very conveniently placed at about the midpoint of the journey. We were welcomed by Sophie and offered tea and biscuits in the Salon. The room was a large double full of interesting bits and pieces. The town is a delight, especially the... More
